Picture of old Norwegian fishing boat decaying on land

Picture of decaying old Norwegian fishing boat on land
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera March 7th 2008. Click image for larger view.
Old Norwegian fishing boats made out of wood is one of my favorite objects to photograph. In this picture you can see a fishing boat that haven’t been on the ocean for many years. It is kind of sad to see it decaying away and not being used for fisheries. Maybe one day someone will restore the boat and bring it back to the ocean where it belongs. If I only had the crafting skills..

Check out this picture of another old fishing boat on land where I have added “lomography” effect. Follow Photos from Northern Norway on Facebook.

    Nice result – I have attempted a few of this type of photo with fustrating results. I can see a wide angle is the trick here. Thanks

    It is a bit sad, but it makes for a nice photo!

    Would be fun to restore it though and take her back out to sea. 😉

    Is the number of independent fishermen dwindling in Norway like it is in New England?

    I like pictures like this. You just know these relics have a history behind them, so many stories they could tell.

    After this beautiful picture was taken, maybe the old boat is not so sad anymore. To me it looks rather serene and grateful.
